3m film, supplier

Was there a supplier that made a "kit" for the front of my 04 Alpine?
If so, who was that?
I did a search and found shops that install.
I am looking for the OEM if there was one.

The "kit" they make for the Alpine is too short. It looks SO-OO much better if the film wraps all the way around to the edge of the cap and extends all the way up and down, too. It is much better looking and longer lasting to do a full wrap instead of the kit or the "regular version" many shops bid on.

Mine was done so well that it is almost invisible to anyone no specifically looking for it. It runs from the very edge of the windshield to the bottom of the skirt and from edge to edge on the entire cap and genset slide.

Of course it cost an extra $400 installed........

So who did you use to install your entire cap film wrap and what is the cost? Sounds like it would provide better protection for the entire front of the coach.

Tired:

I probably paid a bit too much as it was subbed out. The guy who did it was from www.starshieldsolutions.com in the LA area (Ontario). I paid $1500, but believe they are normally $1100 when not subbed.

It looks great!
